Goals

2019 goals

  1. Keep yarn/fiber/fabric additions to a minimum: I made it through Q1 without buying any stash.
  2. Knit from previously purchased pattern: My March socks were from a pattern I had purchased a couple of years ago.
  3. Knit what I feel like: I did force myself to work on Wool and Honey for a few weeks when I really didn't want to. However, I abandoned it in April for something more exciting so there's that.
  4. Spin 15 minutes a day: Thumbs down. I spun maybe half the month or a little less.
  5. Knit more handspun: nope.
  6. Follow #sewmystyle: I'm going to remove this one from the list. I don't know when I'll feel like sewing garments again but I think it will be awhile.
  7. Complete my Make Nine/Take my time with sewing: Ditto with these goals. I'll resurrect them if they become applicable.
  8. Finish Superhero Sampler: I made good progress in March and am on track to finish before the end of 2019. For that reason I'm taking a break from it in April.
  9. Taking care of my health: Generally speaking, things are going well.
  10. Shop less: I feel like I've cut down on some of my more mindless purchases. I did buy one pair of jeans on a bit of an impulse but otherwise the month went ok.

For Q2 I'm actually adding a couple of new goals. First, I'd like to work on my brush lettering for about 15 minutes a day. I would also like to doodle on weekdays to try to improve my atrocious drawing skills.
